Another PADI IDC testimonial by Justin is received. Justin also participated in our February 2019 PADI IDC. At PADI 5* IDDR Resort ‘Thresher Cover Resort’, right here on Malapascua.

To clarify, Justin completed his Divemaster course with us first. After that he signed up for the February 2019 PADI IDC program. As a result, he worked for a short with us on Malapascua. Great job Justin, it was good having you!

In addition he participated in the Specialty instructor training straight after the PADI IDC. However, now he is teaching in Malaysia and we wish you all the best in your future teaching career.

Without further ado, let’s see what Justin has to say;

I did my dive master at Thresher Cove and decided to stay on and continue with my IDC. I didn’t do any research on the course director prior to.

But with my luck Camille turned out to be a great Course Director. He’s extremely knowledgeable and will put in the extra time with people when needed.

Camille teaches with a great deal of comedy, which lifts the stress level from the room.
Camille showed a lot of excitement and care during and after our IE. You could see on his face and by his reactions how much excitement he got by us all passing each section of the IE.
I hope I get the pleasure in crossing paths with Camille again in the future. Wish you all the best in the future with many more successful IDC and IE.
Also I would like to give a big shoutout to Lucio who was the staff instructor for the course. He also spent the whole time with us from day one right to the end. Gave everyone as much attention as needed and was always willing to answer questions.

Thanks for taking the time out and writing this testimonial. Much appreciated!

PADI IDC testimonial by Aaron

We received this PADI IDC testimonial by Aaron. He participated in our February 2019 PADI IDC. Right here at PADI 5* IDDR Resort ‘Thresher Cover Resort’.

Initially Aaron was looking at a different location for completing his PADI IDC.  However, it was clear for him that he wanted to participate in a PADI IDC with PADI Course Director Camille Lemmens. Subsequently he followed Camille to Malapascua since that fitted into his time frame. But, did he like Malapascua and his PADI IDC?

In short, of course he was! For example, he loved seeing the thresher sharks. On the other hand, he enjoyed the vivid amount of small critters and macro live as much! As a result, he enjoyed both tremendously, bot the course and Malapascua. To sum up, it was also my pleasure to have you Aaron! Thanks for the trust you put in me, it’s much appreciated. Most importantly, I was lucky enough to find a new friend and fellow instructor.

In conclusion, let’s have a look at the PADI IDC testimonial by Aaron;

I joined one of Camille’s IDC in Malapascua, Philippines in February 2019. An amazing place for an IDC. This island is all about diving and one of the only places in the world where you get Thresher Sharks guaranteed.

I planned to do my IDC for a few years. Every time I found a course and a place that fit my schedule, the course was canceled or moved to a time that didn’t fit into my busy life. This happened three times. Reaching out to course directors was not the easiest thing either. I got lot’s of “maybes” and “I don’t know” after a long time waiting and sometimes they didn’t even reach back to me.

Not Camille. From our first contact, he was very endeavored to write back as fast as he could. I really did have quite a few questions. I did a cross over from CMAS and was therefore not really familiar with the PADI system. Camille answered everything to my satisfaction really fast and if he was unsure, he contacted PADI immediately. The service was excellent and convinced me to do the IDC with him.

The course itself was a pleasure.

I was lucky to end up in an awesome and very international group. Camille was teaching with fun. Although he has loads of experience, he didn’t seem to get tired teaching the same stuff over and over again. He was able to fit all the individual needs and found ways to make everything for everyone understandable. What I really liked about his course is that it didn’t feel like studying. After a few days in the classroom and in the pool, I could see progress in knowledge and an improvement in my skills. I was amazed to see such big steps just by doing stuff and not actually sitting down and trying to remember books by heart.

Camille has a wealth of experience and he knows exactly what the examiners want to hear and what not. He is the best in preparing you for the IE. At this point, I also want to mention and thank our amazing staff instructor Lucio Bellomo who also did an amazing job in assisting Camille and answering tons of our questions. 

Thank you guys for the good times! I would do it again with you! 

Once more, thanks to you Aaron. For joining this PADI IDC and for writing this testimonial. In the same vein, without you it would not have been the same experience!

To sum it all up. Good luck daddy! Meanwhile you’re right back in Austria with a lovely new born daughter. However, ready as always to tackle the new dive season in Greece. Go Aaron, go!
